This recipe was my GrandMother in Law's. It was a staple at her house. Whenever you went there, it was on the table. I don't know why she called it "Man's Cake" but everyone seemed to like it. She always served it without the glaze. I post this in honor of her. We Lost her a little over a year ago & her Birthday was March 16. RIP Granny Thomas, We Love & Miss You.
